Vs. is a rock album. As far as I'm concerned, Pearl Jam made only two true rock albums. Ten, and Vs. The others are more expermimental with punk, pop, and folk. Every song on this album is excellent. The guitar, drums, and vocals are at their best here. It is just a pure masterpiece.
Go-9.5/10- What a way to open up an album. This is just one hell of a rock song. Eddie's vocals tear through the song, and a strong bass line backs it all up.
Animal-10/10- Absolutely amazing rock song. The vocals are just primal. There's a sense of funk in this one. There's a great guitar solo in here that shouldn't be passed up.
Daughter-10/10- We've all heard this song. The first acoustic song Pearl Jam ever did. Great lyrics about child abuse and the solo really takes the cake. This song also has a great outro.
Glorified G-9/10- Another song with an almost funky sense. Interesting guitar riff. Great tongue in cheek lyrics about gun control.
Dissident-10/10- Easily one of my favorite Pearl Jam songs ever. Eddie's lyrics and vocals are just captivating. There's a great lead riff and rythym riff in this song that perfectly blend to create a beautiful combination of power and melody. Almost perfect.
WMA-8/10- This is the album's only rough spot. The song is too tribal and never gets going. The only thing that really saves it is Eddie's mesmorizing vocal performance. Overall though, I can't say anything too bad about this one, the lyrics are really great.
Blood-9/10- This is one hell of a rock song. The vocals are just awesome. Easily the hardest song on the album. The huge scream after the second chorus really jacks this one up. Interesting guitar too!
Rearviewmirror-10/10- An absolutely excellent song.

OK. . . so i might be assuming too much if i say this album will change your life- but I'm saying it anyway! I'm a die-hard music lover, and as soon as i first heard pearl jam (at the tender age of 11) i fell head over heels. Being at such a vulnerable age and feeling so alone,i found a dear friend in pearl jam's TEN, and their lyrics helped me understand that all people go through hell sometimes. The lyrics of "Vs" (my fave pj album) empowered me and gave me music to laugh to, cry to, and cherish altogether. Eddie Vedder has such an amazing voice and their songs are so unique compared to any other. I am now 19 turning 30 ( i've gone through so much in my young life like deaths of loved ones, living around the world, and so much more) and i still cherish "Vs." to this very day. I reach for it when the world doesn't make sense, get into my car and shout out the lyrics to "rearviewmirror"- while i drive into the dark. . . and i stop feeling so alone in this world. I imagine that I know Eddie, because his lyrics are so in touch with all of the different emotions i go through and with all of the affect dynamics in my life. When I listen to Pearl Jam, I can close my eyes and feel the moisture of my first loves goodbye kiss on my cheek( so many years ago now it seems ), My mother's hand in mine and i feel the breeze on my face of a million new experiences and treasured moments that yet haven't entered my life. Pearl Jam's "Vs." is an album to treasure, I promise.

What an appropriate name for this album. Lyrically, the themes are full of conflict. Black dude vs. white cops. Ed vs. the media. Children vs. their own parents. Five against one, and so on.
Musically, it's both angrier and more tender than Ten. While it doesn't have the consistency and overall depth of that album, it brings a new element into PJ's sound that continues to this day....experimentation and diversity. It's too hard to describe this album in general. One track at a time, please.
1. Go - In my opinion, probably the best PJ album opener ever. Written by the new drummer, it suceeds thanks to sounding like a harder version of a Ten song, and takes off on a blistering McCready solo.
2. Animal - For the first 8 seconds, this one sounds like Even Flow part 2. But then Ed starts counting "1, 2, 3, 4, 5 against 1..." and it becomes clear that the two songs have nothing in common. Continues the flow begun by "Go" perfectly.
3. Daughter - The only hit song from this album(and the only one blatantly ripped off by Sheryl Crow), I love the bipolar mood swings of this tune; at times it goes from uplifting to depressing and back without missing a beat. Plus you have to love the way it ends, with an ominous-sounding refrain about the shades going down.
4. Glorified G - I really hate this song; I admire the fact that they're already trying to ditch their established "sound" this early into their careers, but this one just annoys me. That's ok, cause look what follows...
5. Dissident - Amazing. I'd rank this up with "Release" and "Red Mosquito" as one of Pearl Jam's most beautiful songs ever. Reminiscent of Ten if only for of it's haunting chorus.
6. W.M.A. - When I first heard this, I hated it ...
